It’s one thing to talk about making the world a better place to live.  It’s another thing to actually do it.   The members of Carter’s Chord, through actions and their song “Love A Little Bigger,” are making a difference and hope to inspire others to do the same.

Sisters Becky Robertson, Emily Fortney and Joanna Ott have partnered with international humanitarian organization World Vision.  It’s through that organization that they’ve been sponsoring a little girl in the Dominican Republic.

The siblings recently took a trip to Central America to not only meet their sponsored child, but also to get a feel for the work that World Vision does.  While there they took the opportunity to shoot the video for “Love A Little Bigger.”   The words to the song are inspiring, but when coupled with the honest, real-life people and places shot during the trio’s trip, they are even more impactful.

The Show Dog-Universal Music artists say their work on “Love A Little Bigger” has been extremely rewarding and the favorite thing they’ve done as a group.  If they sound proud of the song and the video it’s because they are and they have every right to be.   They are providing a positive message that aims to inspire action on both grand and small scales.

We caught up with Carter’s Chord to find out more about the video, the complete story behind it and what they and others can do to make an everyday difference.

Carter’s Chord is aiming to inspire people to live up to the title of their upcoming video “Love A Little Bigger.”  The video makes its world premiere exclusively on VEVO this coming Monday, April 16.  The Show Dog-Universal Music group will follow the premiere with a live chat on Tuesday, April 17 to talk about the video.  The chat will be available on their Facebook page and their Ustream channel.

Carter’s Chord consists of siblings Becky Robertson, Emily Fortney and  Joanna Ott.  They recently took a trip to the Dominican Republic to shoot their music video in conjunction with international humanitarian organization World Vision.

The song, written by Emily, was inspired by a trip the group took to Guatemala where they experienced first-hand the poverty people in that area were living in.  “When we made the trip to Guatemala in 2009, we were struck by the amazing need for love that exists in this world,” says Emily.  “After returning home, I sat down one afternoon and wrote this song.  As artists, our hope for the world is that we all learn to ‘Love A Little Bigger’.
